Trailing with ten minutes remaining, the Dragons’ Ryan “Iron” Griffin refueled the gridlock by tying the game at 4-4. Staying true to form, the Knights answered with a goal as Alejandro Cifuentes made it 5-4 with a net to net rocket. For a brief period, the scoring rush slowed as Josh and Raquel Belber joined forces to firm up the Knights’ defense but the lull was once again shattered as Matt Miceli torched in his second goal making it 5-5. With 40 seconds left on the clock, the Knights got a huge break as a Dragons miscue put Angel Martinez in the hero’s roll as his penalty kick goal gave his Knights’ squad a 6-4 victory.
